    Default Need to buy Kanthal Wire and Wicks!! Best place to buy?

    Hey all! Just got into RBA's. I need to buy some extra wick and wire. Where's the best place online to buy? or Does local hardware or computer shops sell any of that stuff?

    Complete noob to the RBA world, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    What about SS mesh? that counts as a wicking material, no? Where is the best place to get that? as well as the silica and Kanthal?

    That wire is almost free compared with what I've been paying

    personally i prefer as many others to stay with A1 it is a better quality wire. some people have success using D but it gives me problems.
    the difference is it has a slightly higher alum content making it a bit stiffer and shorter time from warmup to glowing. which in my case was too fast to work properly before reaching overheating stage.
